Floppy disk Announcing FS-UAE 2.6.1

I am pleased to announce the release of FS-UAE 2.6.1 Improvements over version 2.4.x include:
  • Updated emulation code from WinUAE 3.1.0.
  • Support for PPC emulation (can run AmigaOS 4.x) via QEMU-UAE plugin.
  • More emulated hardware support (Toccata, A2061, Picasso IV, …).
  • Better support for modern OS versions due to using SDL 2.0.
  • Built-in support for multiple displays, and fixes for HiDPI displays.
  • The Launcher supports modern OS versions better due to using QT 5.x.
  • Much improved FS-UAE Launcher user interface.
  • FS-UAE mouse integration (Workbench cursor follows host cursor).
  • Updated internal kickstart replacement from AROS.
  • Dual joystick/mouse mode for joystick port 0.
  • Official builds for SteamOS (Linux + Steam runtime).
  • OS X apps are now digitally signed (Apple Developer ID).
  • Support for JIT direct memory access (much faster JIT).
  • More gamepads are recognized out of the box.
  • Many bug fixes.
  • … and a lot of other improvements. See the ChangeLog entries for full details.

Actually, I kind of suck at writing up great announcements and highlighting cool new stuff, so if I have forgotten something essential and wonderful in the list, feel free to add in replies/comments

(But for all details concerning changes since 2.4.1, you can read through the changelogs for FS-UAE and FS-UAE Launcher)

Great work

I'm giving it a blast right now and it's running rock solid on my i5 Retina MacBook Pro.

Thanks

Congrats!
FS-UAE has become one of the most used programs on my Computer.

I don't even know what that is (Okay, I googled it and it looks like Norway is part of this thing). So I guess I do know now... I don't know exactly what you need, but possibly:
IBAN: NO5137001551125 SWIFT/BIC: SOFJNO22

(But, instead of "cash", I also accept help testing the new JIT compiler, etc )

There is no reason for not doing both.

Excellent, "both in bag and sack" as we would say in Norway (crappy translation on purpose)

(Happy testing )

Oh, this is something big. Heise is a well known and respected publisher in Germany. Every german "IT-Bitch" reads Heise. FS-UAE will be popular now.

Nice - I don't know if it is related, but I got a new all-time record for visitors to fs-uae.net yesterday (Actually, I just remembered to check the referrals, and heise.de is indeed on the top list yesterday, and responsible for the record )
